RFID goes mobile

Traceability for LF, HF and UHF applications!

Clearly assign objects and products and track them at any time. Our traceability solutions allow you to read data tags in your prodcution line. However, there are times when data must be read, visualized or changed away from the line or machine and handheld readers are a more efficient solution. Our BIS V RFID handhelds provide a more flexible option for manual processes – e.g. for inventory or warehouse management, rework, quality control or even service and maintenance work. And swappable antennas allow them to be a complementary counterpart to any Balluff fixed reader.

Mobile, multifrequency, modular

Our RFID portfolio is extremely diverse. Our handhelds with smartphone design are at least as diverse. For reading/writing data tags – whether HF, LF or UHF – with just one device, the handheld BIS V is an ideal choice. Create the handheld reader just right for your application by combining a base device, a suitable plug-on module and one of our read/write heads. And with an app that can be individually configured, you can visualize and edit data content flexibly at any time.

In addition to RFID functionality, the reading of 1D/2D barcodes is also possible, thanks to the optional integration of a 1D/2D scanner and camera, with or without the addition of a NFC antenna.
